Okay, if you haven’t heard of ‘Boo-ing’ yet, where have you been? Kidding. Just keep reading and I will share all of the details! At the end of the post you can grab my Free Boo-ing Printable. This is a very fun, interactive game you can play with all of your neighbors and friends. It’s a cute and nice way to doorbell ditch and get a little adrenaline rush as you try to run and not get caught. If you love doing it at Halloween, give it a try around Easter as well with my Egging Free Printable.

Halloween is the perfect holiday to play this game though. It’s right before the big busy holiday season in November and December, while everyone is itching and excited for the holiday stretch to commence. Adding this game to your Halloween traditions is a great way to quench that thirst.

It’s all about getting the holiday season started on the right foot. Summer is just a fading memory by this time and the crisp autumn air has fully ushered in the changing colors of the leaves. That familiar excited feeling is creeping in. It’s holiday season! Time to have some fun. (Keep the holiday season going in the new year as well and try my Valentines Day option Free Heart Attack Printable). Can you tell I love holidays? haha. Alright, back at it. Here’s what it looks like:

What do you need to ‘Boo’?

To play the game you just need to print out 2 copies of my free printable and a treat. You can make your own, grab something from the store or do both! We also like to include some toys, crafts or decorations from the local dollar store.

How do you play the ‘Boo-ing’ game?

If you’re starting the game you can ‘Boo’ as many people as you’d like. The more you start with the quicker it will spread. If you are a recipient of a ‘Boo’ then the instructions will let you know. In order to continue playing the game you should print out 2 copies of the printable and ‘Boo’ two houses who have not already been ‘boo-ed’ within 2 days. Remember to quickly put your ‘We’ve been Booed’ sign up in a visible window or on your front door so that you are not double boo-ed.

What if you get caught ‘Boo-ing?’

That’s okay! Although secretly Boo-ing people is part of the game, it can be just as much fun if you are caught! We have been caught multiple times over the years. I blame it on my younger kids that can’t seem to run in a straight line to the car. All I know is we’re rarely fast enough! We just giggle, wave and drive or run away. Whoever we’ve boo-ed is still happy to get a surprise and treat, even if its not from a secret friend anymore.

What treats can I make to go with my ‘boo’?

Oh, I have a lot of good suggestions for you! Try making my Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie, which is fitting for the season. Or you could make Oatmeal Apple Cinnamon Cookies, another seasonal delight. You could also make the classic Chocolate Chip Cookies. Nobody has a problem with a classic chocolate chip cookie, right? Whatever you decide to make will be well appreciated.
